I can un-encrypt the root but the sub folders do not get un-encrypted and also when I attempt to un-encrypt at the file level I get error that my privileges are not sufficient. This is even in Built-in admin level.

How can I un-encrypt all my folders/files in my slaved HD? Thx!
Unfortunately that is the downside of encrypting.

Essentially you have to have the same GUID (and have the password) as you did before. I am not sure if it can be done. try googling decrypting old HD
